(FT4) Firmware update coming soon for other Olympus MFT cameras

olympus_capture

I keep receiving info from various anonymous sources saying that the E-P5, E-M5 and likely also other cameras will get a firmware update within the next few months. This is highly likely also because Olympus Capture Software yet doesn’t support any other camera than the E-M1. I hope the new firmware will allow tethering and some of the other new E-M1 features on all current MFT cameras!

New Panasonic LX100/GM5 and Olympus 40-150mm test roundup!

Olympus 40-150mm tested at CameraStuffReview and writes:

The construction and image quality of the Olympus 40-150 mm f/2.8 are absolutely top class. The combination of an Olympus OM-D E-M1 or Panasonic GH4 with an Olympus 12-40 mm f/2.8 PRO + 40-150 mm f/2.8 PRO is a compact, high-quality tool that weighs a couple of kilos less than a traditional 24-70 f/2.8 + 70-200 mm f/2.8 and a professional SLR, which the image quality comes surprisingly close.

(FT4) Panasonic AF100/101 successor coming at NAB 2015.

panasonicaf101

I guess most of you already forgot there is also a Micro Four Thirds camcorder line from Panasonic :) Well, according to two anonymous sources there will be a new AG-AF camcorder in 2015. One of them said it’s likely to come at NAB 2015 and replace the current AG-AF100/101. Pretty obvious that this new camera will have 4K recording. Other features are yet unknown…
